BEIJING -- Former Prime Minister Khurelsukh Ukhnaa declared victory Wednesday night in Mongolia's presidential election with an apparent outright majority of votes in early tallies.

Khurelsukh heads the Mongolian People's Party, which holds a supermajority in Mongolia's parliament. He would replace outgoing President Battulga Khaltmaa, who is leaving office following changes to the constitution that limit presidents to a single six-year term.
